Three recommended shows to see on Monday 21 Aug…

Quarter Life Crisis | Underbelly Cowgate | 2.40pm
In this recommended comedy theatre show “highly amusing anecdotes explore the confusion millennials face, alongside more personal stories”. The resulting performance is “genuinely moving, comical and particularly easy to relate to”.

Simon And Garfunkel: Through The Years | theSpace @ Symposium Hall | 8.50pm
A top tip from the music programme, Dan Haynes and Pete Richards faithfully reproduce the earlier sound of Simon and Garfunkel in this “relaxing, good natured show”. Notes our reviewer: “’The Sound of Silence’ gave me a shiver to hear it live”.

Whalebone | Pleasance Courtyard | 1.00pm (pictured)
“’Whalebone’ expertly walks a very fine line”, says our reviewer, “balancing serious, impactful discourse with a cheeky sense of fun. The three actors mine the comic potential in the audience’s sense of awkwardness, forcing us to confront these feelings even as they put us at ease”. Go see.
